ECCLESIASTIC (MONASTIC) MEDICAL TRAINING (Leading to Licensure)
As a Medical Order, SMOCH [Pronunciation] offers our Fellowship specialized training to assist in our missions and to inspire in all persons a love for God, a passion for wellness, and a consciousness in our Ministers to perform their sacerdotal duties to God and fellow human beings. The mission of the Church of Hope is to sow the Seed of Hope, in the hearts of those sick and infirmed. Our mission involves fostering a Church that can be a safe gathering haven for healers to experience the grace and forgiveness of God; a fellowship of believers where they can find healers of like mind; heal those that have wounded hearts and souls; where they can be nurtured and discipled into faith in the one true God and rejoice in Christ consciousness.
Licentiate of Natural (Monastic) Medicine (link) is a traditional, naturopathic [online] diploma program. We consider it the most advanced and comprehensive program in the world! Working in affiliation with PanAm University, graduates become eligible for ecclesiastical licensure with the Church of Hope. Application
